  • We always knew

    I used to roll my eyes at the thought of Duran Duran being inducted into the Hall of Fame. For years, it was sort of the side joke I’d snicker about in private with close friends. Not that I didn’t feel Duran Duran was worthy. My feeling was, if Depeche Mode and the Go-Go’s could […]

  • Don’t Stop Believing

    Since 2005, I have traveled to see Duran Duran quite a few times. Some trips have been very short – like a three day weekend to and from New York City. (Why I ever thought that was a good idea, I’ll never know) I felt like I was there and back within a blink of […]

  • A Hollywood Premiere!

    A Hollywood Premiere!

    I’ve had a nice change of pace this week. Rather than needing to come up with a blog-worthy topic, I’ve needed to choose which one to write about! Since I last posted, I have done the circle tour of Los Angeles, Las Vegas and back to my home in Atascadero, California. My visit to LA […]

    Dynamic Pricing

    This post has been thrashing about in my head for quite awhile now. On one hand, I’ve been angry enough to write about it for months now. On the other, I’ve been too angry to put together a cohesive post. What in the actual f*ck is going on, Ticketmaster?? Was it not enough for you […]

  • I acknowledge the FOMO!

    In fandom, FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) is a huge deal. A “Big Thing”, if you will. No one wants to miss a single thing, but some of us—okay, many of us—have to pick and choose what we do. Maybe it’s finances that deter us, perhaps it is geographic location, or both. (I haven’t forgotten […]

  • Life is worth the discomfort

    Life is worth the discomfort

    Hi there. Again I find myself saying, “What should I be doing right now?” The answer is (as always) “not blogging.” Except that you know what? Sometimes, I really NEED to blog, and that’s okay. This is one of those times. I know this website is “technically” supposed to be about being a DD fan. […]

  • My spirits are high

    You know what I should be doing right now? Not blogging! Alas, I felt like I needed to sit down and write. So, here I am. I find myself in the somewhat familiar position of having about 35,000 things to accomplish today, and yet I just continue to ruminate over the last week or so. […]

  • No Way to Fight It

    No Way to Fight It

    I remember when I used to search for song lyrics to title my blogs. It was fun for a while, but somewhere along the line, I grew tired of having to search through songs. I knew every last line, had used many of them multiple times, and couldn’t seem to make the lyrics I had […]

  • But wait, there’s more!!

    But wait, there’s more!!

    I don’t know how many people have had the good fortune to stumble upon the recent post on Facebook regarding Duran Duran’s return to Vegas. No, not the one taking place on Thursday night, I mean another return AFTER the return (after the return…rinse and repeat!). Duran Duran announced that over the weekend just before […]

  • Talk about getting older…

    Sometimes, I just have to sit back and laugh. Like some of you, I’m sure, I’ve noticed that the band has commenced with their US tour. My sister was at what ended up being their first show, in Chicago. I have her word that it was “awesome”. Coming from her, given that she would tease […]
